Sensation, the global dance event that started in Amsterdam in 2000, is headed for Dubai in October. The house night – formerly known as Sensation White – has seen the likes of Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Swedish House Mafia, Hardwell, André Tanneberger, Darren Emerson, David Guetta, Erick Morillo and Felix Da Housecat entertaining the crowds. This will be the first outdoor edition of Sensation, which has held indoor events in more than 30 countries. As with all Sensation events, the dress code is strictly white: guests will not be admitted unless they are wearing all white. Meydan Racecourse will be transformed into an oasis of white for the night, and can accommodate 15,000 revellers. This year’s theme is Source of Light. Sally Edwards, the director of Dubai Calendar, says: “Dubai welcomes the globe’s top artists throughout the year to perform in front of thousands as part of the city’s unrivalled events calendar. Add to this the outdoor premiere of Sensation, the world’s leading dance event to one of Dubai’s most luxurious and renowned venues, Meydan Racecourse, and we have on our hands a truly exciting save the date for both visitors and residents to the city. Offering a night of the very best dance music against a backdrop of the bright lights of the city, it’s time to take the globe’s leading dance event to a whole new level as it arrives in the world’s go-to events destination.”

Sensation is on October 31 at Meydan Racecourse, Dubai. Tickets start from Dh325 for early bird entrey and Dh375 for regular. For VIP table reservations and more information, visit To check out the Source of Light trailer, click here.
